Uluru climb incident yesterday with the 12yo girl her injuries were much worse than what was reported.
She lost her grip on the chain and slipped, fell backwards and rolled 5 to 6 times. The result was she broke or dislocated multiple fingers, lost a tooth, suffered head injuries, a cracked pelvis, a compound fracture in left ankle, and a ‘possible’ broken left collar bone.
Her dad carried her down. The girl was screaming.
Mum (paramedic) and Dad was in shock, to the extent of being unable to even state their names.
Mum and Dad argued over ambulance cover and how much its gonna cost them.
Ambulance radio stated; “Don’t move kid or give her anything. And that they are coming whether Mum and Dad want them or not.”
The parents refused the ambulance. Instead, they put her in their rental and drove like mad to Yulara Clinic.
There is no honour from PARKS AUSTRALIA to Anangu Traditional Owners at the moment. You can even date that back to 1996.
Anangu Nguraritja request two months ago was to have 100 people on climb per hour due to crowding, safety and stress on park ranger doing rock rescues. It was laughed at and ignored.
So if someone dies before next weekend don’t blame Anangu. Blame PARKS AUSTRALIA.
